Not a stupid question, but glad you found the answer, hopefully where it was covered a few pages back.

So if 90 percent have a private verandah, does that mean that 10% have a shared verandah? Or are they referring to just the oceanview rooms as making up the other 10%? Inquiring minds want to know!

Yes I found it. I thought the forward facing rooms at the very front had port holes too, and wondered if there was some sort of covering over them but I had a wee look at DCL website and discovered that they are just glass.
They look huge.

Actually they are portholes with an additional covering over them. Underneath that ribbon of plexiglass are 7 portholes on each deck. There is a post on page 8 or so that addresses this, and links to a post where this was discussed during construction.

Take a look at the pictures below. Deck 8 is the top ribbon of windows across the bottom front (Deck 7 being in the middle, and Deck 6 being the bottom row.) Mentally divide the space into 7, to represent the 7 portholes that are hidden behind the false front on each row. 8504 is the corner room and gets the first porthole on the left (as you face the ship), and 8502 is the room next to it, getting porthole #2 from the left (as you face the ship.) We are booked in 8006 which is the corner room on the right as you face the ship, and gets the 7th and last porthole. You can use the same logic to find your deck 6 room. The small picture on the right was the picture captured during construction and referenced in the other thread on page 8.

On more recent pictures we've seen, the platform up front that was by the royal suites seemed to have moved or been gone, so it may be moveable and/or removable.

ok, this is probably a silly question , but I've never cruised before, so.... is there an advantage to being on one side of the ship vs the other??

thanks!!

Some folks have preferences as to which side they are on when the ship docks at certain ports, or when sailing across the ocean in different directions. DCL has generally backed the ship into Castaway Cay, so the rooms on the right, or starboard side have the best view of the beach and island, while the rooms on the left/port side have a view of the pier and water beyond.

I think someone looked once and there seemed to be more preference for starboard/right side rooms on the past schedules. But we've been on both sides, and there are things to see and it didn't seriously impact our cruise enjoyment.

Depending on which deck and which ship you are considering, there may be some preferences for one side versus the other to avoid noises such as the kitchens or night clubs if you're looking at a room on Deck 2 on the current ship.

Your room is the 18th verandah room from the left up on Deck 10. If you look at the picture below, your room should be the 9th verandah from the left on the top row of verandahs. If you look up to deck 12 where the guys in blue are standing, you are under the one guy standing alone, between the two pairs of two men.

My reference point in finding your room on this picture is the verandah on deck 9 with the cardboard or wood against the railing. That is the 10th verandah from the left. Your room is 18 total from the left, so I counted on 8 more rooms from that column.




My continued appreciation to andreas de for his pictures!

Start with the picture below. Find the white spot that looks like a missing room. Those are the doublewide verandahs of rooms 8590 and 8588. The verandah window to the right of that blank space is room 8588. It is directly above room 7590. Your room 7570 should be 10 rooms to the right of 7590 (88, 86, 84, 82 (has a light on), 80, 78, 76, 74, 72, 70) and 7568 is the 11th room.

You can also start on the right of the picture, and your rooms are the 6th and 7th rooms from the right on Deck 7, which is the second row of verandahs from the bottom.
